Designed to Deliver Maximum Performance Throughout the Set, Next Generation Kalea Features Many of the Company’s Most Notable Performance Technologies

Carlsbad, Calif. (October 4, 2019) – TaylorMade Golf Company, an industry leader in product innovation and technology, announced today the introduction of the new Kalea line, a new complete set of eleven clubs thoughtfully designed utilizing many of TaylorMade’s proven technologies to deliver meaningful performance to female players.

TaylorMade is committed to product performance and creating game-changing products designed to make golfers of all skill levels and swing types better; the introduction of Kalea continues to deliver on this commitment with the new and markedly improved offering. With Kalea, every component has been engineered to deliver easy-to-launch performance through maximum clubhead speed. Every club in the new Kalea set has been meticulously engineered to result in optimal lengths, lofts and proper gapping.

Kalea utilizes proven product technologies such as Speed Pocket™ technology that allows for flexibility low on the face for high launch and added forgiveness. Further, a low/back center of gravity provides an easy to launch club with added forgiveness throughout the set. In the metalwoods and irons, a new, softer and lighter Kalea ULTRALITE graphite shaft has been chosen for its softer flex and lighter overall weight, allowing for increased clubhead speed but also contributing to the set’s lighter overall build.

PGA REACH Launches CrowdRise Campaign In Support of 3rd Annual PGA National Day of HOPE on Veterans Day

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — On this date in 1954, Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower, a former Army General and war hero, adopted a proclamation calling upon all U.S. citizens to observe Thursday, November 11, as Veterans Day:

“In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all Veterans, all Veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose .” – Pres. Eisenhower

In tribute to that declaration and in honor of our nation’s Veterans, PGA Foundation Inc. d/b/a/ PGA REACH, the 501(c)(3) charitable foundation of the PGA of America, has announced that Sunday, Nov. 11 — Veterans Day — will serve as the 3rd Annual PGA National Day of HOPE. This nationwide Veterans celebration has two goals: Commemorate our nation’s heroes who protect our freedom; and raise awareness and support for PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere), the signature military program for PGA REACH.

In support of this year’s PGA National Day of HOPE activities, PGA REACH has launched a campaign on the CrowdRise platform, which also allows for individuals and organizations to create their own fundraising events.

Through CrowdRise, donors can support PGA HOPE locally, nationally or create their own campaign all together. In the inaugural year of the PGA National Day of HOPE CrowdRise platform, PGA HOPE Carolinas, PGA HOPE South Florida, PGA HOPE Southern Texas and GOLFTEC are all conducting their PGA HOPE fundraising efforts within the platform. To learn more about the special events and contribute, visit the CrowdRise campaign page: crowdrise.com/pganationaldayofhope.

“PGA National Day of HOPE continues to evolve and gain momentum every year,” said PGA REACH Senior Director Ryan Cannon. “This new fundraising platform is something we can build on and provides donors with options on how they would like to support the PGA HOPE program.”

PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. The program features a six-to-eight week instructional golf clinic, followed by a graduation ceremony and on-course golfing opportunities.

Fully funded by PGA REACH, PGA HOPE is offered at NO COST to military Veterans. Led by PGA Professionals, PGA HOPE has helped thousands of Veterans assimilate back into their communities through the social interaction the game of golf provides.

The following initiatives are currently part of the PGA National Day of HOPE CrowdRise platform:

Bob Sowards Shifts from PGA Cup Heroics to Defending His Title at Senior PGA Professional Championship

AUSTIN, Texas — After playing five matches and 85 holes for his country in the PGA Cup, Bob Sowards of Dublin, Ohio, will take 48 hours off to catch his breath before defending his title Thursday in the 31st Senior PGA Professional Championship presented by Cadillac.

The big consolation for Sowards, the 51-year-old PGA Director of Instruction at Kinsale Golf & Fitness Club in Powell, Ohio, is that he won’t have to travel.

The Senior PGA Professional Championship is hosted by Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, the site of last week’s PGA Cup, the international showcase for PGA Club Professionals. Sowards was one of 10 U.S. heroes in a historic 14-12 comeback victory over Great Britain & Ireland, as the Americans recaptured the PGA Cup after a four-year absence.

Sowards competed last week on the Foothills Course, which will join the nearby Coore Crenshaw Cliffside Course in hosting a field of 264 players through Sunday, Oct. 6.

“I’m really looking forward to defending my title, and we will have another great field,” said Sowards. “It was a long, but great week here in the PGA Cup. I learned a lot about the course. I’m needing my rest.”

Joel Tadman attempts to find out if raw wedges that go rusty over time, including the new TaylorMade Milled Grind 2, actually produce more spin and feel softer.
